    It's a dynasty league.

    There's an optional draft before every season where you can drop any number of players you like to pick from the group of FAs, but the drops must be made before the draft and without knowing how many players others are keeping. It's actually a pretty fun addition to a dynasty league.

    Are you a contender? If so, I'd 100% be targeting a Lackey, Kennedy or Kazmir if you need the immediate pitching help. I wouldn't really invest in pitching too much long term.

    Like I really wish I had unloaded Sale for Puig when I had the chance, lol.

    I'm not really a contender right now - more middle of the pack. I won this league two seasons ago, and am now pseudo-rebuilding.

    Lol. Yep, I wish I'd traded for Puig when I had the chance as well.

    A) Votto

    or

    B) Polanco + Kendrys

    NOTE: "A" have tons of OFers (Stanton, Braun, Heyward, JD Martinez) and needs to increase their OBP.

    Deal seems to make sense for A. Votto is a a hell of an upgrade over Kendrys.

    His "awful" perfomance so far is nearly 140 points of OBP better than Morales's performance so far.

    Don't worry, I didn't do this deal. What do you guys think of Lincecum + Infante for Brock Holt? Guy in my league is a huge Red Sox homer with beautiful quotes like "Holt may be legit," "Lincecum's stats suck," "Infante was a throw in," "Holt's BABIP means he's better than Infante," and so on. I've been arguing with him for weeks about it and now that Holt is cooling off and Timmy threw a nono I think I finally won the argument lol.

    if this is anything less than a 16 team league or 25 starting spots...you spent weeks debating waiver wire or steaming players.

    Sounds like your type of deal!

    Hey guys. I'm having problem with my outfield.

    My outfield is currently: Melky Cabrerra, Kole Calhoun and JD Martinez.
    On the Bench I've Starling Marte and Mark Trumbo.

    Bit Worried that this season is blown for Trumbo. Shane Victorino is currently available on waivers after coming back from injury. Should I drop Trumbo for him or wait for Trumbo to come good?

    I probably wouldn't. Trumbo's got far better RoS projections.

    If it's a 5v5 league, ID rather have Victorino as my 5th outfielder over Trumbo, especially since your starting 3 arent SB threats

    I don't think you can go wrong either way. I've never liked Trumbo but he's got some value in a 5x5, so I'd probably lean towards waiting out his turnaround.

    In an ESPN league Im in with 40 man rosters where you have to choose one player to drop next offseason who would you choose: Vmart, Pujols, Kazmir, Ortiz, Lester, Greg Holland?

    Assuming you can't make any kind of trade to free up room, I would drop Ortiz. He'll be 40 next season, and I know I say this every year, but eventually he has to break down.
